Scattered images in my mind

Updated on November 9, 2011

At first glimpse

Two yellow flowers in one
Two yellow flowers in one
Thick and sticky spring clings to water as well
Thick and sticky spring clings to water as well
water is back in this dry country
water is back in this dry country
Spring is back
Spring is back
Night is back again
Night is back again
 Love means trying to bring the best in each other not to try to change each other
Love means trying to bring the best in each other not to try to change each other
I have a right to be me and to be loved for myself
I have a right to be me and to be loved for myself
 The problem with the past is that  it is just that - the past
The problem with the past is that it is just that - the past
It does not relate to the reality of the present
It does not relate to the reality of the present
 Move on
Move on
Friendship means to take on the friend's hat and wear it with a pride
Friendship means to take on the friend's hat and wear it with a pride
And return it willingly when time comes to enter the unkown water leaving all the worldly possesion behind
And return it willingly when time comes to enter the unkown water leaving all the worldly possesion behind
Love means to let go and not to be afraid exploring alone. Enter your dark tunnel leaving all your passion for others to share
Love means to let go and not to be afraid exploring alone. Enter your dark tunnel leaving all your passion for others to share
You manage to get across many obstacles with vehemence and your inner strength will surprise you
You manage to get across many obstacles with vehemence and your inner strength will surprise you
Finally you reach your lonely tower, the ultimate goal of your destination, where no one and nothing can follow you
Finally you reach your lonely tower, the ultimate goal of your destination, where no one and nothing can follow you
Spring ended, summer passed and autumn waits for a winter to come. You don't wait, you have already left. People who don't let you go, make a symbol in your memory, your only mark...
Spring ended, summer passed and autumn waits for a winter to come. You don't wait, you have already left. People who don't let you go, make a symbol in your memory, your only mark...

FOLLOW ME...

Forget

Winter's grey skies,

biting winds and heavy rains.

Spring descends.


It brings its warmth and colour

hiding the red and rusting rocks

as sea of yellow flowers

envelopes the landscape

and us


Thick and sticky

the pollen clings to you

just like me

it is all too hard to resist...


Laying down

amongst it all,

a gentle warmth

of your breath...

a cloudless sky

only the sound of birds

and YOU on my skin


The perfect spring day

until the night time comes

again...


The night

takes us back

to the heart of human darkness


Hypnotic, gripping and disturbing

world of TV news

while we eat take aways

getting ready for work

recreate in our dreams


The memories of our perfect spring day

are gone...


LET RECLAIM OUR PERFECT SPRING DAY ...

Let start the journey back again...


Let wake up the inner child

within me...

be out in the wind

feeling the crushing waves

on my face


Swimming in the ocean

sitting in the sun

I am who I am

a girl or a woman

or a dying star...


I live in the past

but look at my son

and I know it is time

to leave beauty

and a sorrow

to leave everything behind...


Let move on

Let prepare for a journey

into the unknown

when my time draws to a close

what will be

what I regret leaving most?



LET MOVE ON


Let move on

Let prepare for a journey

into the unknown

when my time draws

to a close

what will be

what I regret leaving most?


Love, relationship with my man

spiritual connections

with my friends?

Does everything end up

out in the wind

under the stars

on the face on the moon?


Everything ends up

my life

my ups and downs

all my frustration

my exhilaration

all my emotions

I need so much

to report about

I am after all

a reporter of the human condition,

in all its variations

adding words to the art

in the space of the sentence

I describe my loves

I describe my life.

      While reading "Follow Me" I traveled backward to a time when my soul mate and I sat on the banks of a river, idling our time away. There was no need to speak. We were always comfortable with the peace found in silence. He is gone, now, to a better place and I wait. Thank you for the memory.

      Dear Frank, every day before I start to write, I think about the wisdom shared by many writers before me: 'Words can kill or heal, use them wisely'...thank you for your viist and your beatiful comment.

      Dear 'stessily', in spite of many shortcomings and difficulties in my life I bless every day because if there will be nothing left I still have my imagination to carry me on...thank you my fellow hubber for following my journey and expanding on the wisdom hidden in my words....

      Dear Beata,

      I had sensed that, within your writing was an adventure

      and a beggining, If i could switch places with you I would.

      for within me is a soul that feels trapped in a world of much sorrow and dispear, in my eyes the there is an unbalance which is very unconforting, we don't belong here. I am a man that has witness the side of man that is not so beautiful and it makes me feel shameful of the things we as people are capable of doing. I don't know if you have read my hub on the surrender I hope you get time to read it. I am writting a hub right now that has to do with my smallest granddaughter and I hope you read that also, I know not of your beliefs, however I do know you are open minded. My Friend take care of yourself.

      Dear my fellow hubber I think you are putting on a pediestal, where I don't really belong, I just like writing and reflecting on life around me...I think my vision 'cleared' after I was diagnosed with incurable disease...suddenly all those small everyday troubles that occupy 90 per cent of our time stopped bothering me and I started to focus on a bigger picture...I think it is the cost of realization that our lives are just such fragile and one minute you are here and another minute you are gone...and you want to leave at least someting behind...even if it is just few footsteps in a quickly disapearing sand...

      Wow!! Beata,

      your not an ordinary person, Your an extraordinary person, your perseption and interpretation of life appears to have taken you to the realms of the beauty that most couldn't even with 20/20 vision, for most nowadays have that problem, I see you've been given a gift and you share in return that is excatly what this world needs. Thank You so much.

      thank you my fellow 'hat girl'...love hats too, only recently my friend gave me red one, and she had one too, so we walk around, two red hats in the grey line of rushing crowd...thanks for voting, I don't know too much about it...I am not very good in following rules so I click everything everywhere and the most of the time I am disqualified, but I don't really care too much...I don't believe that winning any competition would make me better writer or better human being...the connection with my readers is what is important for me:)

      You were not kidding, Beata. Your passion shows through in your work. And the hat.. how awesome that you wear it (my hat collection is full of fun!), and even more awesome that it symbolizes such a connection to your friend.

      Great job!

      Sorry, dear Gary for confusing you, it is just a slang we use in Australia...'down under' means 'big island at the end of the world, down under the Europe, America, Asia and so on...it means Australia' so what I meant was visit my hubpage and that I am from Australia:)...you are on the right hubpage:)....thank you for popping in and leaving your beautiful comment....I am happy my fellow hubbers do not give up on me....I love to meet new inspiring people but I speak two other languages and 'my English'

      is just 'mine':)

      Don't be envious my dear Kathleen, I often feel I am lost cause and my use of English is not efficient enough so I think people on hubpages are very kind and big-hearted to encourage me on my writings...I love writing but I write 'my way' and I am happy my fellow hubbers have embraced me for who I am....THANK you for being one of them and come back again:)

      thank you my fellow hubbers for your encouraging comments, this is the first poem I have written for hubpages unsure of myself and my skill of mastering English...I have got my first comment from 'Immartin - now my friend Linda', who said: 'Keep writing, you are on right track and I have never stopped ever since:) Hubpages are just great and I am so grateful to all of you, my fellow hubbers because I have a reason to write...and there is someone somewhere reading it....

      Dear Pearldiver, I am the same...we need more time out of work to write and comment on hubpages...maybe in our other life, ha,ha..happy you managed to come back:)

      Dear Tammy, I have studied for two years in Russia but it was long time ago...so I understand Russian, but not so well anymore...used to read and write my own stories in Russian language, have to try again:)

      My dear Lita, when I write I just see images in my head that I try to capture in photographs first and then I have an urge to write them down...English is my third language so there is my 'uniqueness or my own writing style', but English is very flexible and great language to use...(hopefully I don't spoil it too much with my foreign way:)

      "What will I regret leaving most?"- Now I'm having scattered images, Beata! Haha! Very vivid poem and beautiful photos to go along with. Congratulations and Cheers!

      Thank you Beata I especially love these phrase:

      "Does everything end up

      out in the wind

      under the stars

      on the face on the moon?"

      Well I ask myself the same question and know the answer as you surely do too.

      Cheers!

      Beata, thank you for the moment of love I felt in your poem. Diving in it, I forgot everything around me. By the way, I am also a language mix (like you): Polish, German and English. :) Maya
